The aim of cosmetic surgery procedures is, first and foremost, to achieve desired results. Some procedures work better for patients than others because what they can achieve is so individualized and particular to unique body types. Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified plastic surgeon who advises patients on surgical options through this individualization. Procedures like body contouring are particularly effective for patient desires because along with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure options, patients can also elect for Liposuction, a discrete technique for the removal of excess fat from the body.
Liposuction is perhaps considered the most versatile surgery because its techniques can be applied to nearly any curve of the body: hips, thighs, calves, flanks, under the chin, etc. Patients often seek liposuction because it is able to target small pockets of fatty tissue that traditional exercise simply cannot. As with other plastic surgery procedures, liposuction surgery fees are based on the length of the surgery itself (which determines surgical, facility and anesthesia fees). Because the liposuction technique is so well-developed, even a shorter surgery (90 minutes or more) can achieve some really dramatic results, as seen in these patients before and after liposuction surgery with Dr. Oldham.
Find out your liposuction options when you call Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda office to schedule your initial cosmetic consultation. The consultation fee is automatically applied to the surgical fee when you schedule the liposuction procedure.
